  • Beats Music Subscription-based Internet Radio Service Launches with its own iOS App


    Beats recently launched an iOS app for its Internet radio service slated to officially start operations at a later point today, adding another music streaming option for iOS device owners to choose from. The service throws its hat into an already crowded ring occupied by existing services such as Apple’s iTunes Radio, Pandora, Rdio and Spotify. That being said, Beats Music is moving in a different direction, with a subscription-only pay structure that looks to stand out with better content discovery.

    According to the release notes and the company’s website, Beats Music is a “new kind of streaming service” that leverages input from music experts and machine algorithms for content discovery. Over 20 million songs from a wide variety of genres are on tap for both streaming and offline listening. Along with track, album and artist search functionality, a “Highlights” section displays popular music from the Beats Music community.

    Unique to the service is a “Just For You” section, which populates a playlist with a tailored mix of music. “Right Now” is a “fill in the blank” feature that creates a stream based on where a user is, what they feel like, who they are with and what genre of music they want to listen to. Last but not least, sharing of favorite tracks, album and playlists is supported via Facebook, Twitter and Beats Music’s own network.

    Originally cofounded by Dr. Dre and producer Jimmy Iovine, Beats has made a name for itself with the fashion-forward audio accessories like the beats by Dre headphones. Words of Beats Music, the company’s first attempt into content distribution, first surfaced in October 2013 after scattered rumors pointed to a possible Apple tie-up that never happened.


    Those of you interested in trying Beats Music can do so for free via a 7-day trial period for first time users and the free 13.2 MB app download from the App Store.

      The headphones are not that good so I can't imagine the service being any better.
